Perhaps the most truly Mediterranean of all the snowdrops :)

Yes, Alisdair,
for which I'm most grateful!
We struggle with G. nivalis here but G. elwesii improves and multiplies a little each year,

Some more snowdrops out now:

1) What I received as Galanthus plicatus but is most likely an Galanthus elwesii hybrid;
2) a different one also received as Galanthus plicatus and not the same as the first one, but is it true to name?
3) a group of G. elwesii seedlings;
4) one of those seedlings with green marks on the outer petals;

cheers

This little snowdrop was found this morning - it's probably the common Galanthus nivalis but in our garden it is a rarity!

Strange but interesting to be reminded you are gardening in a different season Fermi alhtough it hardly seems a minute ago that I was  eagerly awaiting the first Snowdrops.....
Now of course the garden is burgeoning with new things coming into bloom every day.

The winter snowdrops are in bloom in our garden. We don't get masses of them but there are a few which seem at home here in Central Victoria.

Galanthus rizehensis
A sinister snowdrop!
Galanthus elwesii large green inner
Galanthus maybe 'Magnet'
The double Galanthus 'Lady Beatrix Stanley'

I hope the moderators will forgive my going off subject a little. Fermi, I see you list your occupation as a physio and your location as Victoria. With the latest news from that area regarding the virus I hope that you are not in 'the front line' as it were and that you are keeping safe.

Hi John,
Thanks for your concern.
I hadn't been working and was about to start applying for jobs when the pandemic hit!
I'm in a high risk group so am a bit unsure about returning to work...more time for gardening, I guess!
cheers
